PayPal CBD policy 2021

Paying for your order via Paypal

Many of you asked why we not working with PayPal.

Paypal’s terms and conditions of use are not explicit. Though we cannot determine the exact cause for the suspension, we do know the issue is related to CBD products. We only work with products deemed legal by European regulation standards, and all our CBD products contain less than 0.2 % THC. This amount of THC is well below the 0.3% threshold above which the product would be considered psychoactive. Our CBD is 100% safe and in no way, shape, or form a narcotic.

Paypal account suspension

Our professional account was suspended, and all existing funds are blocked from being used. This was a hard first blow for a small, growing business like us.

Paypal also reserves the right to freeze personal accounts of managers and employees belonging to the company without a valid explanation. This implies that Paypal could also easily target and block our customer accounts while keeping the funds. This is a situation we’d like to avoid at all costs.

Why avoid Paypal?

Due to their unpredictable policies,  we will not be able to offer Paypal as a method of payment on the Phenolife product site. Based on their policies shared above, it will be complicated for us to recover the money which was unfairly taken from our company.

The future of the CBD market is unfolding in North America, Europe, and internationally. Even if Paypal chooses to change their highly restrictive policies we will still avoid working with them on principle. Services like Paypal may seem user-friendly and secure for customers, but behind the scenes is a different story that can harm both businesses and customers.

Alternatives to Paypal

At PhenoLife, you may not be able to pay via Paypal but we offer a secure payment method for credit cards:

Credit card payments via Paytriot – Paytriot Payments are registered directly with Visa and MasterCard to provide an all in one payment solution

You also have the possibility to use a bank transfer, which is slightly slower but secure.

We are always looking to improve ourselves so that you can enjoy high-quality CBD products with top customer service. We are currently looking to add more payment methods for your comfort and convenience.

What about the buyers’ guarantee?

At Phenolife, we offer the “received or returned” guarantee. The principle is simple: from the moment you place an order, we promise to deliver, resend or refund your products in the event of any problems or dissatisfaction. We believe our policy is better and more secure than a buyer’s guarantee.

Vaping Crisis Threatens To Return Smokers To Tobacco

With all the shocking headlines in the media these days about vaping, it’s little wonder that ex-smokers in their droves face the real possibility of returning to smoking tobacco.

Vaping devices (also known as e-cigarettes and vape pens) were invented around ten years ago, primarily as a smoking-cessation device to help those wanting to give up smoking tobacco, whether in cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. After years of not-so-successful nicotine chewing gums and transdermal patches, tasty nicotine-infused vape juices (e-liquids) grew to popularity. Vaping is considered many times safer than smoking tobacco, or at least it was until recently.

Worrying Trend

To date, roughly 1300 known cases of lung injuries associated with vaping have been reported in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Of those, 28 ended fatally, and all the cases have been associated with vape juice containing THC (from cannabis) and not from conventional nicotine products. By way of a response, various snap decisions have been made at both state and federal levels who have, in some cases, banned flavored vape juices and even e-cigarettes.

Despite years of no lung issues for ex-smokers who moved to vape, tainted THC e-liquids containing additives such as Vitamin E Acetate and even Hydrogen Cyanide have led to some terrible lung injuries. A suspicious vape cloud of mystery and uncertainty pervades the whole issue as various authorities scramble to come to terms with the “crisis.”

The real tragedy here is that the new snap regulations, aimed at stopping or at least curtailing the lung injury epidemic, may achieve little more than turning tens of thousands of ex-smokers back to tobacco. Ironically and almost comically, tobacco is readily available despite clear knowledge that it kills thousands of people each year. Shockingly, CDC figures from 2018 confirmed that around 480,000 Americans die each year from tobacco-related illnesses; that’s approximately 1,300 deaths per day from smoking.

At the same time, the CDC estimates that 11 million Americans use nicotine-based vaping products. With the recently reported figure of 1,300 cases of vaping related issues, that represents only a fraction of the 11 million estimated vapers.

Black Market Products

With all that said, the media, on the whole, has failed miserably to report the facts of the vaping crisis responsibly. The main point they missed there was that all of the cases come from black market THC vaping e-liquids and pre-filled cartridges which contain dangerous additives such as Vitamin E acetate.

While the government in the USA struggles to come to terms with the vaping problems, even in a small way, the UK has a clearer and more somber approach to the matter. The National Health Service in the UK even offers those wanting to stop smoking guidance and assistance to obtain e-cigarettes, while they claim vaping is “up to 95% safer than smoking.”

It would be the height of irony if the misinformation about the issues with tainted vape juice and cartridges ultimately turned ex-smokers back to smoking. There are even those who’ve suggested a conspiracy theory involving big tobacco aimed at increasing revenue to that industry, which was previously ‘stolen’ by vaping.

For the time being, what is known is that vaping is safer than smoking, at least in the short-term, although any long-term effects of vaping remain unclear, and that presents a problem for vapers and researchers interested in studying vaping alike. If it turns out that long-term vaping is, in fact, as harmful to the lungs as smoking, a whole industry will crumble overnight. At the same time, there are steps one can take to ensure that the vape juice they buy is “clean,” and that’s a priority for vapers at the moment.

Buying Safe E-liquid

Leaving aside the unknown long-term effects of vaping, there are ways to make sure you’re purchasing e-liquid, which is safe for vaping by checking several things before you buy:

  • Only buy e-liquid (vape juice) from reputable vendors in the CBD industry
  • Read customer reviews
  • If vaping PG, VG or MCT concerns you, opt for 100% pure hemp extract vape juice
  • Check third-party lab results
  • Ideally, buy from companies who send their CBD for testing on a batch-by-batch basis
